Welcome to my World!

My name is Charlene Mitchell and I live in Burlington, Ontario, Canada.  My blog is called “Crystaldolphins’ Blog” because I LOVE dolphins! I have loved them for as long as I can remember and have a great deal of dolphin collectibles. The ‘crystaldolphins’ comes from an amazing picture that I came across quite a number of years ago. I saw the picture and then discovered the link to the artist’s website. His name is Bruce Harman and his website is here. I own several of his prints and his work is as amazing in real life as it is in the pictures. In 2005, I went on the trip of a lifetime to swim with dolphins in the wild, on Bimini Island, Bahamas through Wildquest. The experience is almost beyond words.

Hopefully you’re not disappointed, but I do need to let you know my blog is not about dolphins! I have been a crafter for many years and my current addiction is ZIA (Zentangle-Inspired Art) and doodling along with card-making. What I hope you’ll find here is some inspiration for your own crafting and card-making. I receive no money for any of the things I post or create. For design teams that I’m on or have been on, I sometimes receive free images for the challenges I participate in only. When I promote or rave about someone or something, it is because of my personal experience with them/it and I just want to share.

Thanks for joining me in my cre8tive journey!
